Marcus Tullius Cicero
“A room without books is like a body without a soul.”
Marcus Tullius Cicero

Clarence Day Jr.
“The world of books is the most remarkable creation of man. Nothing else that he builds ever lasts. Monuments fall, nations perish, civilizations grow old and die out, and after an era new races build others. But in the world of books are volumes that have seen this happen again and again and yet live on, still young, still as fresh as the day they were written, still telling men's hearts of the heart of men centuries dead.”
Clarence Day Jr.

Jonathan Swift
“When a great genius appears in the world you may know him by this sign; that the dunces are all in confederacy against him."

[Thoughts on Various Subjects]”
Jonathan Swift, Abolishing Christianity and Other Essays

Thomas Jefferson
“I cannot live without books.”
Thomas Jefferson

Jane Austen
“The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.”
Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey
